|Citation:||Ko, V., Han, G., Feng, Y.P. (2010-10). Electronic band structure matching for half- and full-Heusler alloys. Journal of Magnetism and Magnetic Materials 322 (20) : 2989-2993. ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jmmm.2010.05.017|
|Abstract:||We explore the lattice and the electronic band structures matching between the half-metallic Heusler alloys (half-Heusler NiMnSb and full-Heusler Co 2MnSi) and several hypothetical non-magnetic Heusler alloys by using first principle calculations. The lattice and band structure matching are almost perfectly satisfied between the two materials of similar crystal structures: (i) NiMnSb and XYSb and (ii) Co2MnSi and X2YSi, where X, Y=Ni or Cu. Owing to the high interface spin scattering asymmetry, these materials are promising to realize a high giant magnetoresistance at room temperature. © 2010 Elsevier B.V.|
